Benefits of IV Therapy

Chances are, if you think about an IV drip, your first thought is probably not about detoxing or boosting your energy. But that’s exactly what you can get from today’s IV therapy.

Yes, IV drips are still used in the hospital to replenish fluids or provide nutrients and medications to patients, but IV therapy serves a completely different, often unexpected, purpose.

IV therapies like the ones offered at Essentials Medispa & Salon are administered in a private room (when available) while you relax and listen to music. Lay back in comfort with a pillow and cover up with a blanket while the infusion specialist sets you up with customized IV vitamin cocktails and intramuscular nutrient shots to help you reach your goals.

Maximize your health, boost your energy, prevent an illness or reverse a disease you’re battling – these are just a few of the benefits you can receive from an IV therapy session.

How IV Therapy Nourishes Your Body

The traditional way of nourishing your body is by eating healthy foods and taking vitamin supplements. Unfortunately, pulling vitamin and mineral nutrients from the foods we eat is a very complicated process. It involves multiple steps and there are many issues that can get in the way and interrupt the natural flow.

In order for the nutrients in the food to get to your blood so it can be circulated throughout the body, the food must be digested first and absorbed into your system. This requires proper gut health, which many people are simply unable to maintain. Add to that the fact our foods today don’t contain the same amount of nutrients they did in years past, so even eating clean and healthy food is not enough to ensure proper nutrition and nourishment.

That is why IV therapy is a great way to nourish your body and get the nutrients you may be missing. IV vitamin therapy completely bypasses the digestive system and deposits vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients directly into the bloodstream where they can be 100% absorbed. This allows your body to be flooded with critical nutrients in much larger doses than you could take orally and allows for nourishment at the cellular level. This gives you overall improvement in your nutritional status and can provide relief for many symptoms of acute and chronic illnesses.

Who Can Benefit from IV Therapy?

Just about everyone can benefit from the efficient, increased nourishment of IV vitamin therapy. In today’s hectic, fast paced life, almost everyone is suffering from something. It may be a lack of sleep, chronic stress, physical pain, inadequate nutrition or just constantly feeling tired and rundown.

IV therapy addresses all these issues and more. There are therapies designed specifically for nutritional deficiencies, while others work to reduce stress or combat illness or fatigue.

Taking IV therapy can be administered proactively if you’re trying to maintain an optimal level of wellness, with proper nourishment and increased stamina and energy. It can also be used in the treatment of chronic conditions, such as asthma, cancer, depression, drug addiction, lupus, as well as acute conditions, such as headaches, fatigue, colds/flus, allergies, morning sickness… the list goes on.

Additional Benefits of IV Therapy

Comparing IV infusions to other forms of nutritional therapy, IV drips come out on top. They are convenient and fast acting, gentle on the digestive system and more effective than oral solutions.

IV therapies also provide a wide range of overall general health benefits, including:

  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Fewer symptoms of allergies, diabetes, erectile dysfunction and PMS
  • Weight loss
  • Improved hydration and skin quality
  • Improved mood, energy, stamina and metabolic functions
  • Shortened recovery time and optimal performance for athletes
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Support for healthier sleep patterns
